Travelling through the beautiful Luxulyan Valley, across the Goss Moor and finally glimpsing views of the Atlantic Ocean is a great way to arrive in the popular surf resort of Newquay.

The railway station is conveniently located in the heart of the town, so forget parking problems and traffic – come by train.
